Probably no world leader (except Trump) has gotten “less respect” from the Worldwide Left than Fulgencio Batista.
As Che Guevara and Fidel Castro rank as the Worldwide Left’s heroes, the man they overthrew ranks as their chief villain. And that’s that!…No questions ALLOWED! … In brief: No respect from the Left, (who–in their classic ignorance, arrogance and stupidity–haven’t a clue that many of the social and labor policies Batista pushed in Cuba were to the left of Obama’s in the U.S.!) All The Left knows is that Batista was an enemy (however ineffectual) of their heroes Fidel and Che. And that’s all a leftist’s tiny brains can process on this issue.
In 1940 (70 years before Americans elected Obama) Cuba ( a nation 73 per cent white) elected a Black President.
Life Magazine caption: “Batista’s VALET helps him with his olive drab army uniform…” (Yes, amigos: in 1938–in the “horribly racist” place Soledad O’Brien described to me on Morning Joe– a BLACK Cuban head of state (from behind the scenes) had WHITE valets!) Better yet, the Black Cuban head of state being fussed over by a WHITE valet is the very head of state who Soledad O’Brien denounces for oppressing blacks in a horribly racist society! (Soledad O’Brien , by the way, is a Harvard graduate.)
“No J*DAS! CHICA!..Read my books THEN get back to me!”
Life magazine caption, on left: ‘Notice Negro boys. Cuba has probably the nearest thing to perfect equality between whites and blacks in the world today.”
Two years after this Life article’s publication, Cuba (73 per cent white at the time) freely elected a Black (by U.S. standards) President, Fulgencio Batista! (Life magazine issue here. Batista piece starts page 20.)
“Humberto Fontova is a gifted polemicist who pulls no punches. A great service for liberty, justice and truth.” (The Weekly Standard on Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.)
“You guys don’t have a freaking CLUE about Cuban history!…READ my books–THEN get back to me!”
Castro is considered lovable by many celebrities–but the fact is the Cuban people are suffering. It’s well worth reading a book by Humberto Fontova, who lists all the facts–and also footnotes them!” (Radio Superstar Dennis Prager.)
“I read Fontova’s book in two sittings. I couldn’t put it down!” (Conservative Radio superstar Mark Levin.)
“Oye señores! Pero lo de este Fontova ya no tiene nombre!…Mira que le encanta joder!”
